App Development & Integration

Historically, SAPinsiders have focused on ABAP-based development and customizations within systems based on the NetWeaver stack. However, with the advent of cloud-based systems and technologies these traditional development needs are being expanded or replaced by the need to create on newly deployed and different technologies. This is coupled with the need to integrate these new technologies into existing corporate landscapes so that data can be centralized, distributed, or moved in both directions to meet day to day business needs. Content in this area will focus on tips and techniques for those using existing SAP systems, while supplementing that with learnings on newer technologies and cloud-based development. Content will also cover the complexity of integrating existing systems and new technologies, with advice for addressing the challenges faced in providing the needed integration capabilities.
